New climate report has grim predictions
A new report says that much of the world’s plant and animal life could be decimated by the effects of climate change over the next century. Worldwide levels of carbon dioxide are the highest they’ve been in almost two million years.
Sub-Saharan Africa, Central America, Amazonia and Australia would lose the most species of plants and animals. And a major loss of plant species is projected in North Africa, Central Asia and South-eastern Europe.
Thermal invisibility cloak in first demonstration
Researchers have built and tested a form of invisibility cloak that can hide objects from heat.Similar cloaking efforts are underway to make objects invisible to light and even sound waves, but this is the first device to work with heat.The prototype, to be outlined in Physical Review Letters, contained a 5cm-wide flat region impervious to heat flowing around it.The technology could be put to use in thermal management in electronics.
